FTN Episode 454 – All Aboard(ing action) For Preview Reactions

FTN small square

The Preview last week gave us our first tastes of new Astra Militarum stuff and I personally didn’t realize how thirst I was.  Yum.  Gimme some of that new Guard stuff ASAP.

Hey folks,

Please consider grabbing an FTN T-shirt to help us celebrate the shows anniversary. The link can be found here. Proceeds will go to doing something nice for cast members of the show. The sticker is cool too and has been on my laptop for a year.

There is something pretty satisfying about painting Astra Militarum tanks and weapons platforms.  I continuously make pew pew and boom boom noises with every brush stroke.  These new model reveals have me jazzed, if you couldn’t tell.

Every single member of this podcast plays Guard to some capacity.  The army lends itself to many styles of play and basically every single one of us is on the edge of our seats with anticipation.

We get our hands on the models from the latest Kill Team set – Shadow Vaults which GW has generously provided to us for review and first looks.  Wow.  With the new Kill Team sets the preview also announced new ways to play with your 40k figs.  I don’t get tired of that!

We recap the Chicago Open by Games Workshop and give a little details about the Harlequins list that won along with the runner up – Emperor’s Children of all things.  Chaos is back, baby!

We’re delighted to continue to represent Discount Games Inc as sponsor of our show. They are helping bring FTN to you. Please check them out and support the organizations that support us.

Forge the Narrative is mostly a Warhammer 40k Podcast. Each episode is about an hour long. This ideally gives you something neat to listen to on your way to work, or on the way back home. Maybe you can even listen while you are painting or modeling!

Please follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook!

FTN mostly focuses on 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you. We are now on Pandora!! If you’re looking for another place to listen or you’ve shifted to that platform you can find us there.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
